Down by the Riverside

Yesterday we got together with Andrew’s parents, his brother and his family, and his Marine brother Ben for a picnic on a farm near Mt. Crawford.  There is a river there, and we went wading in the river.  We had brought along two innertubes, and they were great for floating in the lazy part of the river.  I felt like I could live the life of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn!

After our time at the river, Paul and Hannah were tuckered out.  Here’s Paul having a quiet time in the back of our van.  Hannah was in a bedroom with her big bear having a quiet time.

BenAfter the meal, we played Pictionary until about 8:30.  That was plenty late, considering that we then had to load up our tons of paraphernalia and drive about 45 minutes to get home.  But, we had a great game and had a lot of fun.  My team lost, but we were ahead for most of the game!  It was about as perfect a day and picnic as we could ever have hoped for.

    Oh, to be able to play in the water and float in innertubes….. Ugh – maybe I don’t want to live in a landlocked state for the rest of my life!
